Double eight = 88

dw_ls54_double_happiness


These two lovely mommies, Everydayhealy and the Giddy Tigress gave me this tag on eights. Kena tagged twice on eights equals 88. That looks like the Asian culture symbol for Double Happiness right? So by looking at the numerical formation, can I be superstitious and presume that Double Happiness is in my future? *peers into the glass ball* Uhm. Too murky to make out anything. *grin*

alyson: Hi! Nice to know that someone out there reads Janette Oke too! I haven't tried her 'Love Comes Softly' series, but I may try it next. I didn't know there is DVD too. Will check it out. Thanks for the link!

Jerri said...

Rinnah and Alyson - I'm a huge Oke-fanatic! Love's Unfolding Dream comes out today so I know what I'll be doing...curled up in front of the tube with a bowl of Orville's finest! I don't know if this movie has its own site or not, though...

Rinnah - love the lists...keep 'em coming!

rinnah said...

jerri: Hi and welcome to my blog! Wow, I'm surprised that Janette Oke fans are actually finding my blog through this tag and some other posts... but I have yet to meet another fan in my part of the world though. *grin*
